power and yet there's president obama today exasperated, talking about how his hands are tied hereby can do nothing. it is a national security matter on which he just has no authority to fix the problem. because even as the cheney doctrine of executive power lives on and the congress wants to foist on the presidency the constitutionally inconceivable power to wage war forever on his own say-so without checking with anybody, despite all that, on this one issue on an offshore issue in communist cuba, on this one thing the congress has decided to get up on its hynde legs and tell the president, no, mr. president, you are don't get to decide, we do. >> i've asked to review everything we've done in guantanamo, and i'm going to reengage with congress to try to make the case that this is not something in the best interest of the american people and it's not sustainable. the notion we're going to continue to keep over a hundred individuals in no man's land in perpetuity, even at a time when we've wound down the war in iraq, we're winding down the war in afghan stan, we're having success defeatin

. you know the message is okay, i will cross the red line that president barack obama of the united states keeps talking about. why does the u.s. say there is a read line on these issues? tens of thousands have been killed in the war. why a red line on this. >>. >> because if there was an incident or a massive attack, chemical weapons are used and 5,000 people die, or even 200 or 400 or 600 people die, and this is the first recognized use of chemical weapons against a civilian population in a decade and half, and there is no response, then you are encouraging every regime in the world that what is these horrible weapons to use them. this is the danger. that president, because he put this red line out there, could make himself look weak. could make the united states look weak. and could encourage others to use these things. >> right. >> that if you use the weapons and there is no response, then assad could feel em boldened. i can do this more and more. maybe his trial balloon, if you will. seems ridiculous to use a trial balloon like that. imagine, just to make an acorn size one and

options that the white house has been considering. president obama has been very careful in terms of not really talking about those options that are under consideration. tonight that changed and he said he is not at this point considering putting boots on the ground. using the term, he does not foresee putting boots on the ground in syria. the president has to some extent boxed him in. he said of course if syria uses chem weapons that would be a red line. the white house saying they believe chemical weapons were used but there are still too many questions about the origin of the weapons. president obama not ready to say how he is going to proceed when it comes to syria. so again we are still trying to get reaction to the israeli airstrike. >> andrea, you mentioned before john kerry is in moscow, on a trip specifically with the intent of trying to move forward diplomatically on presenting a u united front, to avoid further military escalation, to avoid a regional conflict. the chief on stek sell russia which is course with the assad regime, as well as iran. how does it change the n
